BILL NUMBER:S5352

TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize the town of Bedford in Westchester
county to apply revenue received from any one municipally-owned town
cemetery to help defray the costs of improvements made to any other
municipally-owned town cemetery

PURPOSE: This bill authorizes the town of Bedford in Westchester
county to apply revenue received from any one municipally-owned town
cemetery to another municipally-owned town cemetery.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1. Notwithstanding article 15 of the
not-for-profit corporation law or any other law to the contrary, the
town of Bedford in the county of Westchester is hereby authorized to
apply any revenue received from any one cemetery owned by the town of
Bedford to help defray the cost of improvements made to any other
public cemetery owned by the town of Bedford,

JUSTIFICATION: Cemeteries around the state are finding themselves in
disrepair with no funding to address this issue. Cemeteries serve a
very important (although seldom thought of) function in our society.
They help to preserve the history of many communities throughout our
state and around our great country. Some are large like Arlington
National Cemetery and some are much smaller like Bedford Cemetery.
Big or small they are all important and play a part in everyone's
life. They are a place of solace. They are a place of remembrance.
Finally, they are a place that we all go to when we wish to visit our
loved ones that have already passed. This is an important piece of
legislation and recognizes the importance that revenue plays in
preserving our cemeteries.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: None

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined

LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately
